This design will be used across the transformation network, highlighting, and celebrating work which has been co-produced by service providers, communities, carers and people with relevant lived experience. This includes co-design, co-decision making, co-evaluation and co-delivery of services, signifying excellence in practice.
Use of the logo is subject to a set of guidelines for teams and services wishing to use it as a mark of co-production. Read the full set of parameters for use.
Sarah Newton, Senior Service Manager for Transformation at North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust, comments:
“The voice of our Experts by Experience has been insightful and influential in the way in which Combined NHS Trust has approached our Community Mental Health Transformation journey. The design and co-production of a logo that shows everyone when a piece of work has been developed with our experts by experience is a fantastic achievement. It gives both Trusts a way of showing people when co-production has been achieved, champions the value of it and hopefully encourages others to think of ways they can co-produce too. I very much look forward to seeing the new logo in use.”
Upkar Jheeta, Head of Mental Health Transformation at Midlands Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust said:
“I am delighted to see MPFT’s commitment to sharing power and decision-making abilities with service users being commemorated with the establishment of a co-production logo. Planning for the delivery of the best possible health and care requires a person-centred approach. I hope with this logo we can continue to highlight and celebrate work which makes positive difference to service users lives.”
